We would like to welcome you to Groy Family Dentistry and thank you for choosing us as your dental healthcare team. Simplify your first appointment by completing your patient forms at home. If you are a patient of record, please let us know at the time of your visit if there are any changes to your personal, medical and financial information. If you have any questions whatsoever, please call our office and we’ll be glad to assist you!
Your First Appointment
At Groy Family Dentistry we strive to make your initial experience with our team personable, informative and pleasant. We are a family dental practice with the skills and experience that allow us to provide a variety of comprehensive dental services.
At your initial visit, which will be approximately an hour, you will be seen by the dentist and undergo a thorough examination which will include a review of your medical and dental history, an oral cancer screening, an evaluation of your restorative needs, a check for periodontal disease and an assessment of any bite abnormalities. If current x-rays are not available, we will recommend taking digital images which may include bite-wings, a full series, or a Panorex.
You will have a cleaning by one of our competent, gentle dental hygienists who will also provide you with oral care instructions to help you maximize your dental health.
After the evaluation and cleaning, the dentist will discuss any recommendations and treatment options.
It is imperative that a child’s first visit to the dentist be fun! We will strive to provide them with the same services as an adult, but we realize that the visit needs to be tailored to each unique child. Sometimes a first experience may just be a ride in the chair, meeting Mr. Thirsty and getting a rooster balloon.
If you are a new patient with discomfort, pain, swelling, or trauma, we will address the need on that particular day.
Insurance and Financial Information
The cost of your dental treatment will vary based on your individual treatment plan. Our office is always willing to discuss in-depth the cost associated with your treatment and each of your available payment options before your begin.
We are an insurance friendly office, and as a courtesy and convenience to you we will file insurance claims on your behalf so that you receive maximum benefits from your insurance carrier. Please remember that insurance benefits are determined by the type of plan chosen by your employer.
